Ian Jelf Winter Public Walks Series

Happy New Year!
To start the new year, to blow away the cobwebs and to walk off some of the extra pounds gained over Christmas, why not join me for one or two (or more) of this little season of guided walks I’m putting on over the next few weeks?
There are some old favourites like a couple of looks at offbeat and unusual Birmingham to start the New Year.   Then there are two walks in the Black Country, in Wednesbury and Bilston.   Quite a few people have asked for tours over that way and I’ve chosen these so that people in Birmingham can reach them easily, too, on the Metro.   Also in response to requests, I’m running walks in the fascinating Birmingham suburb of Northfield and also in Solihull, which has all sorts of tales up its sleeve.
Last but absolutely not least, some of the most popular walks I did last year were the “Ghosts of Old Birmingham” ones, so building on this I’m pleased to offer “Spectral Sutton Coldfield” as a new spin off.   Do watch out for more of these.

To book any of these, simply drop me an e-mail to ian@bluebadge.co.uk then pay (£8 per person) when you turn up.   Guests are very welcome and if you know anyone else who’d like to go on my mailing list, do please let me know.

I need a reasonable number of bookings to ensure that these go ahead so I appreciate people booking as much in advance as possible.   If you’ve any questions, do just drop me an e-mail to ian@bluebadge.co.uk.   Please don't turn up without booking and receiving a confirmation.

Many thanks and best wishes for a happy, peaceful, prosperous and above all healthy 2012.
